Maybe you should vote for them.


message 3: by Richard (new)

Richard Didn't know how to. Have figured it out now.


message 4: by Zak (new)

Zak Much as I like it, I don't see any way that Wheel of TIme could feasibly be made into a movie series without really simplifying it. The special effects would already be costly, and there are soon to be 15 books in the series, and each is fairly long. Studios would never take that up.


message 5: by Aislinn (new)

Aislinn "The Silmarillion" is a beautiful book to read. However, I can't envision it ever being made into a movie. It is far more complicated than "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings".


message 6: by Darlene (last edited Jul 06, 2013 09:33AM) (new)

Darlene As much as I love the Night Angel Trilogy, I don't much like the idea of it being made into a movie. The Way of Shadows alone has so much content that it would probably end up being the length of an LOTR film and still be missing important factors. And if the director would try to cut the film even shorter, it would feel watered down and probably be unejoyable to the fans who asked for it in the first place. However, I feel NAT would do very well as a television series if someone decided to pick it up.


message 7: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten Rodning *Gasp*, why the hate on the Neverending Story movie? Yes, the sequels were the epitome of bad, but the original movie was pretty good, I thought, even if it didn't completely follow the storyline of the book. There is also a lesser known film version of that novel which I have yet to watch, but have moderately high hopes for.


message 8: by Liz (new)

Liz The Silmarillion was a fantastic book but it SHOULD NOT BE A MOVIE!!


message 9: by Hayley (new)

Hayley Outlander should be removed from the list, as its being made into a TV Series now. I can't wait for it to be released!


message 10: by Phoenix (new)

Phoenix The Sweep Series by Cate Tiernan would make a fantastic movie series or TV show, its not very well known, but if more people read it they would likely fall in love with it.


message 11: by Viktoriiah (new)

Viktoriiah The Neverending Story was made into a movie in 1984
